Bank Holiday sort out

This Bank Holiday, I've been quite busy and the weather has been a bonus.

AJ is in the process of selling his flat, so we spent the morning clearing out the flat ready for when the contracts are signed in hopefully the next couple of weeks. Even though AJ moved out over two years ago, we still kept a few items there so it looked lived in. We have now removed these items and bought back home with us.

After cleaning the kitchen, we have replaced my red microwave for AJ's silver one. Good timing as I checked the inside top of my red one, and noticed exposed metal - I'm sad to be getting rid of my microwave but so grateful it hasn't gone bang on me. We have also replaced our toaster for AJ's Breville one, and we have now lots of storage containers, mugs and other kitchen utensils which I've still to put up, but our kitchen is so small, really need to sort out the cupboards - but that will take more time and we wanted to have abit of spare time this bank holiday for ourselves too.

I have also made my scrapbook ready for Learn Something New Every Day class which starts on Wednesday. Please see pictures below. I have covered the scrapbook with Dear Lizzy fabric paper by American Crafts, added the owl (stamp from Basic Grey -JuneBug range), deer and tree (Shimelle's Greenwich Park- Banana Frog stamps), pink glitter numers by paper cellar, some flower embellishments (found in bottom of a drawer in my craft room- sorry don't know who by) and a velvet ribbon ( in Back to School kit from Shimelle). I've tried to keep my scrapbook cover simple - abit like me !!!Ha ha!!!!

In the inside I have used Basic Grey Gypsy range for my core cards, and stamped the date on each. Really looking forward to this class.

I also took some pictures of my kitties, Willow and Kiwi. They have both been in sleepy moods at the moment so thought I would get them whilst they were sleeping. So cute!!!

Lastly, I have been very lucky to win a prize from Humel. Please check out her blog - I really enjoy her blog and hope you will enjoy too - Thank you for the prize, and look forward to receiving in the near future

Good evening from Pickle Land

November round up- Scrapbooking retreats ahoy!!

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.

Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.

However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
